Louise Ireland-Frey, M.D., had her first encounter with death in Colorado as a young girl, when she had several flashbacks to a past life when she drowned in the ocean as a boy in China. Interest in such subjects continued through college (at CU Boulder), graduate school (at Mt. Holyoke College, Massachusetts), and medical school (at Tulane University). While in medical school she received membership in Alpha Omega Alpha and the Honor Medical Society and graduated in 1940 at the top of her class. In 1980, after conquering many years of health problems through self-hypnosis, she took more training and became a hypnotherapist. Past-life encounters were frequent among her clients, and, as she reminds us, "When one has lived before, one has died before." She states unequivocally, "Consciousness does continue after the body dies." Dr. Ireland-Frey is retired and lives in Durango, Colorado. In her late 80s, she is rounding up her life in anticipation of the next major step, her Transition.Ireland-Frey, Louise is the author of 'O Sane and Sacred Death First Person Accounts of Death As Received in Hypnotic Regressions' with ISBN 9781577330905 and ISBN 1577330900.
